101 words of affirmation lunchbox notes for kids

More than 101 words of affirmation for hand written lunchbox notes to your children for almost every day of the school year. My daughter loves hand written lunchbox notes, words of encouragement any kid would love. It’s a great way to stop and tell your children what you want to say to them in a lunch box note full of words of affirmation when life gets busy. 

There are approximately 180 school days in each school year so I’ll continue to add to this list. I currently have more than 101 but you can choose which ones you want to use. I also sprinkle in Bible verses lunchbox notes and Jokes Lunchbox notes for other days of the year also.

I have a post with the 101 Free Printable Lunchbox Notes also that has some great ideas and great free printable. But nothing beats a handwritten note from mom or dad.
